Coral Line by:  Earth Hour 2015

Coral Type: Staghorn

Coral species: Acropora muricata

Happy 1st Birthday Coral Lines! This line was the second of five lines deployed to commemorate the first anniversary of the Coral Lines Project as well as to celebrate Earth Hour at Gili Lankanfushi! This year Earth Hour focused on climate change, which is particularly relevant in Maldives especially in terms of the threats facing our coral reefs! We decided to deploy five lines, which is more than 250 coral fragments to raise public awareness of the plight facing our reefs!
